A car has hit pedestrians in the coastal town of Cambrils, some 100km from Barcelona, injuring at least six people. Five suspected terrorists were killed during a shootout with police, authorities said, adding that the attackers wore fake bomb belts.
“We have killed the alleged perpetrators,” Catalan police announced on Twitter. “We work on the hypothesis that the events of Cambrils respond to a terrorist attack.”
Authorities are now working to determine if the alleged terrorists wore explosive belts, police tweeted.
In few minutes we are going to make several controlled explosions in #Cambrils. If you hear detonations DO NOT be alarmed, are controlled!
